The Chief Minister of the Southern Province Shan Wijayalal de Silva has removed Weerasumana Weerasinghe from the post of Sports Minister. 

The Chief Minister has decided to retain the ministerial portfolio held by Weerasinghe with himself. 

Weerasinghe was appointed as Minister of Sports, Youth Affairs, Culture and Arts, Social Welfare, Probationary Care and Child Protection, Women’s Affairs, Housing and Construction by former President Mahinda Rajapaka in April 2014. 

He had continued to serve in the position even after the new government headed by President Maithripala Sirisena and Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe came to power.
